    I'm having the same issue, except it was happening BEFORE the update to iTunes 7.4. Once the iPhone restarted in recovery mode Jailbreak would just say "Illegal Operation" or something to that effect - I don't quite remember the exact phrase - I quit trying in fear of turning my iPhone into a paperweight.

    ya mine is now a text scrolling paperweight.
    Problem started after having problem with jailbreak, then restored.
    Now it just restarts, scrolls text and restarts again.
    Don't know what to do. Have restore a couple times and does the same after restore finishes.
    Maybe it has to do with 7.4.1

    i did the " unshackle" method with ifuntastic version 3, and i downloaded the new itunes program and both still work great! No problems at all but i dont know if you can "unshackle" after you download the new itunes

    that's definitely good to know...just as long as you don't have to restore your phone in the future (like when they release 1.0.3 in a few weeks). I'll have to give the ol' iFuntastic v3 another shot. That unshackle bit made my phone run worse than my windows machine at work with all of the startup screen junk...etc

    Im only updating my iphone software if they come out with somthing thats worth doing all my mods over again like a flash update for safari! the new iphone update looks like a joke anyways just a way to get you to buy more stuff from itunes nothing thats actually helping how the iphone performs.

    PakiSoldja and BS_Watson,

    I'm also facing problem like you.
    I'm running Mac OS X. And iPhone is 1.02

    I try to downgrade my iTunes to 7.3.2
    The issue still happen.

    Right now I can use only iPhone Activation Tool to activate my iPhone.
    But no more other hack.

    Any one can help on this?
    I'm waiting for new version of Jailbreak...


    And this is my error message look like:

    #########################
    Looking for iPhone…
    Sending Files…

    * If iTunes is running and please close it.
    * Hold the POWER and HOME buttons for approximately 25s.
    * Release when the display says 'Please Connect to iTunes'.

    Sending More Files…
    Illegal instruction

    i had the same problem with my iphone when i downloaded the new version 1.0.2 to my phone.. i tried to jailbreak and got the same "illegal operation" however i figured out how to make it work with iFuntastic...

    once you restore your phone and get the new 1.0.2 version on it close iTunes and install AppTapp application aka Installer app found at http://iphone.nullriver.com/beta/ on your phone once you have done this open up iFuntastic and try unshackling the phone follow the on screen instructions and it should work without a problem... before installing the installer app iFuntastic would give me a communication error but after it worked just fine

    hope this helps
